ack in the August edition of the Sandgate Guide, I told of how I wanted to support local clubs and organisations by donating
marquees for use by them to raise awareness of their organisations.
Recently, my team and I have worked closely with a Queensland
owned and operated business,
Star Outdoor, to design marquees for clubs and organisations who
have struggled over the last 23 months to fundraise in the community.
In many ways this is part of what I call “covering the community”, ensuring people can have some shade and shelter when attending community events as well as supporting community groups and organisations to fly their colours so to speak.
Over twenty clubs and organisations in the 4017 and 4018 have now received a marquee, including: All About Living, Bald Hills Scouts, Bracken Ridge Cricket Club, Bracken Ridge Little Athletics, Ridge Hills FC, Brownsea Scouts, Quota Sandgate, Sandgate Girl Guides, Sandgate Scouts, Sandgate Swim, TS Paluma, Womenspace and more!
Best wishes for the holiday season. Stay safe and prepared.

With the storm season upon us, it is important to be prepared. Sandbags can be used to reduce the impact of flooding on your home
or business. Brisbane City Council provides pre-filled sandbags to residents and businesses in the Council area. From October to March, pre-filled sandbags are available for collection 24 hours a day, seven days a week from the North Depot, 33 Jennings Street, Zillmere. If you or someone you know needs storm or flood emergency assistance, please call the SES on 132 500.
      Despite the pandemic this year your well-earned break over the coming school
the Schrinner Council has
continued to deliver multiple projects that have contributed to a better Bracken Ridge Ward.
With the year drawing to a close it has also been a
pleasure to attend a number of school awards ceremonies. It is often a time of reflection, celebration and excitement for
families and I extend my congratulations to all of our senior students who will be embarking on a new journey. I wish you every success! To our younger students, teachers and staff, enjoy
The Schrinner Council has developed a new free app that will help you find more to see and do over the summer holidays. The app even lets you create your own guides and discover new places to eat, shop and catch up with friends. Businesses can upload their business for free at
I wish you all a very safe Merry Christmas and hope you are able to stop, take a breath and come back refreshed to a new and hopefully better year.
